Mari and I spent a combined 20 hours (or more) preparing to host my first webinar last week. Not creating or delivering the content – those turned out to be the easy parts.  The 20 hours went into researching webinar services, testing them, and setting up and learning to manipulate the one we chose.

If you participated in the big event – thank you!  Your energy inspired me!

Dozens of people wanted to attend but couldn’t be there live.  So for them, we recorded the webinar.  Unfortunately, the recording had poor sound quality and the slides were out of sync with the sound.  Customer service took days to get back to us.  No joy and ease there! Needless to say, I will not be using this company again.

So now for the good news.  This frustrating experience led me to find a new Brilliance-Based Tool that I’m excited to share with you.

It’s called Brainshark, and it’s awesome.  

I simply uploaded my PowerPoint presentation (it could have been a video clip, document, or photos instead) and then spoke my narration into the telephone.  Within seconds of hanging up the phone, Brainshark stored my presentation, ready for me to link to or embed on my own site.  In other words, they have an easy, step-by-step process that allows anyone with internet access to transform content into voice-enriched video presentations.  

And if you want, they even promote your content to their community.  Best of all – it’s free!
